Game Of Thrones
The story of A Game of Thrones takes place during the first book of the saga, at the time when Jon Arryn, the Hand of King Robert Baratheon, is found dead at King's Landing.
The game allows players to follow two epic quests: Mors and Alester's. Their totally original story was canonized by George R.R. Martin himself and perfectly integrates the original story the fans are so familiar with in the series.
All throughout the game, the numerous references to books, characters and famous locations form an impressive Westeros encyclopedia, which players can consult at any time during their adventures.
Mimicking the books, the two heroes' stories are told alternatively, chapter by chapter, each character sharing the role of main character… up until their paths cross during a common quest.
Welcome to a totally innovative narrative style for an RPG.

However, anyone who has enjoyed the song of ice and fire saga will surely enjoy this, especially if you like RPG games.
It has a very engaging storyline as you would expect. The combat system is a refreshing change from most other games I've played; especially when you get used to it. Also not all the choices are quite so obviously 'good and bad' as in other games.
Although the graphics don't stand up to many current games, it is still a pleasure to explore Westeros and meet characters you recognise.
If you're a fan of the Game of Thrones series and games in general then you'll enjoy this game. If you've never heard of game of thrones before this and you're looking for a game to play like you played Skyrim then go away, watch it on TV or read some books, then come back to buy this.
It is basically a monologue of cheesy cut scenes with woeful acting (the lead characters speak in a Hollywood stereotypical hero monotone - imagine Schwarzenegger meets Stallone) interlinked with linear gameplay, occasionally requesting some basic choice selections from the player that I doubt very much affect the outcome. The fighting is farcical.. You hit me then I'll hit you back, now it's your turn again, repeat ad infinitum until somebody dies... Of boredom presumably. I tried not selecting any "queued" combat moves and just let the character get on with it himself - and I really struggled to tell the difference. I can't imagine a method of making the player feel more superfluous to the actions of the character and more removed from the actual gameplay than this one does.
There seems to have been an awful lot of effort spent in re-writing another (worse) version of Game of thrones, with a huge amount - too much in fact - of dreary, cheesy dialogue and not enough time spent on the "game' itself.
The graphics are ok for 7 years ago (the length of time this game has been worked upon, apparently) but the animation is woeful (an uncanny similarity to Thunderbirds puppets in animation format), the storyline is cheesy, monotonous and as dull as a dishwater and the less said about the gameplay the better.Give it a miss. Even if you are a Game of thrones fan... move along, there is nothing to see here.
True, as others have commented; the graphics are not cutting edge. They are adequate though, and the environment created in this game actually feels quite true to the books / film. The 'sets' in some places are actually quite jaw-dropping (Kings Landing).
The story is (for an RPG) quite intricate, and ties in quite well with the 'feel' of the books, as well as the storyline in 'Game of Thrones'. The cameo of the author was amusing too.
Though it has also come in for some criticism, I quite liked the battle system; blending as it does an element of real-time with an element of turn-based. Queuing up complimentary moves between your player characters (and the warg!) to maximise your edge in battle is quite rewarding.
I've done all four endings now, and not even a whiff of Disney. Very dark indeed, and better for it.
In summary, I'll give this four stars. If I hadn't just played LA Noir and Red Dead Redemption it would get five. Finishing it has left me a little bereft, as good games should.
Shame they couldn't resolve one of the four endings to leave an 'open-world' game, like the above mentioned titles... perhaps blending in an element of 'Risk', so to speak - you you could participate in the chaos after Robert Baratheon's denouement, call the banners etc... Maybe I just want the moon on a stick.
If you are expecting a game of player customization this game does not have it, unless you count being able to choose what you wear or which weapons you use. It does take a little while to get used to but most games do, at first i thought "have i made a mistake buying this game" but i didnt make a mistake after an hour of playing I was hooked.
The story follows 2 people, you will do a chapter as 1 then the next as the other then switch over again from what iv seen so far, i wont go anymore into it for spoilers, you will meet and interact with people from the series and books. The combat starts out slow but as you level up you become faster as do your enemies. My advice is save often. The choices you make through the game affect things later on, much like dragon age and in some ways Risen, but again this is a game of its own.
Over all this is a good game, if you are a fan of the series or books then buy it, you will love it, if not then again buy it but my advice is watch the series so you know what people in the game are talking about. Give it time i cant stress that enough. If you are a Skyrim fan boy then remember not every game is skyrim.
